Here are some points concerning the changing of passwords from UoB computers:


  • If the computer is connected via networkcabel (or via docking station ) to the UoB network, it doesn't matter if the computer is portable . You have to log out of the computer after you have changed your password via sebra.uib.no and then log in again with your new password .
  • If you have a private PC it does not matter that your PC is portable. You can change your password via sebra.uib.no without needing to log off and on again.
  • Problems can arise if one changes the password on a portable UiB PC that is not connected to the UoB network using a network cable . This PC will not be updated with the new password before it starts up with network cable connected UoB network. The following describes a method for how to update the password on a portable computer that is not connected UiB network with network cable (provided by VPN or UoB eduroam ).
